Art Alive for Families

Sun, Jun 13, 2021

Join us for Art Alive, a drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience for kids and their families that takes place every Sunday. 2020 MAD Artist Studios resident Kazue Taguchi will be on the floor of the exhibition Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times, where she will facilitate kid-friendly discussions of the Pride flag and the American flag in the context of the works on view. Visitors are also invited to create their own mini flags using yarn and paper. Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 11am and 1 pm and stay as long as they like. The program is offered in accordance with the Museum’s safe social-distancing practices.

This Sunday, find us on Floor 4. 

About the artist

Kazue Taguchi explores the ethereal and intangible effects of light and reflection. Inspired by stained glass windows in European churches, Taguchi works with reflective materials including glass, mirrors, plastic, and light. At MAD, Taguchi will use stained glass and glass mosaic techniques to create sculpture and an installation from car headlights.

Taguchi has been a resident artist at the Corning Museum of Glass, Pilchuck Glass School, Cité Internationale des Arts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Newark Museum, Vermont Studio Center, and Koganecho Bazaar in Yokohama, Japan. She received an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, a BFA at Joshibi University of Art and Design in Japan, and has studied at the Barcelona Glass Foundation.
